Jennifer Berg writes traditional whodunits that take place in and around Seattle, Washington during the 1950s. Her first series, The Elliott Bay Mysteries, feature the reluctant but clever sleuth, Victoria, the police inspector Micheal Riggs.

THE HATBOX MURDERS, Barking Rain Press, 2017. When a bombshell heiress dies mysteriously, Riggs and Victoria will investigate the dead woman’s friends, enemies, and the contents of a mysterious pink hatbox. But when the murderer strikes again, it will take more than a red dress and a gold watch to solve the perplexing case.
THE TUGBOAT MURDER, a mini mystery, Barking Rain Press, 2017. When a scream interrupts Victoria’s waterfront stroll, she boards a private tugboat to find a bachelorette in a negligee hovering over a dead body.
